Originally from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Mike now calls the Shenandoah Valley home. His professional career originally started in the pharmaceutical industry, but upon completion of graduate school he decided to make a career change. He’s been working in the agricultural industry for the past 6 years and is currently the General Manager at Shenandoah Growers. He’s been happily married to his wife Lindsay for the past 6 years & they have a beautiful daughter Harper, who will turn 2 this October. In his spare time he likes to ski, golf, play softball & root for his hometown sports teams and also enjoys traveling internationally. He’s excited to be a member of the third VALOR class because of the professional exposure and the opportunity to learn/understand more about Virginia’s diverse growing regions.
